Beautiful bucket-list Samoa shares its knowledge with agents

For agents who want to discover more about Beautiful Samoa, the Samoa Tourism Authority has been travelling across Europe to showcase the best of the islands to the travel trade and will soon be making one more important stop: the Travel Bulletin Pacific Islands Showcase in Chester on April 15.

Situated in the heart of the South Pacific between New Zealand and Hawaii, Samoa is known as the ‘Treasured Islands of the South Pacific – the true heart of Polynesia’ and the tourism authority has been sharing helpful island knowledge with agents to help them sell better.

For example, did you know Lalomanu Beach was voted one of the top ten most beautiful in the world? Here visitors can opt for a traditional beach front accommodation and spend the night in one of Samoa’s beach fales.

The Taga Blowholes are another must-see; when sea water is pushed through the cavernous stone, fountains as high as 60m can be witnessed. 

Most agents will be familiar with the unique swimming experience that is the Instagram worthy To Sua Ocean Trench, but why not also recommend to clients a visit to the village of Lotofaga, to check out the 55m high Fuipisia Falls. Here visitors can lose themselves in the tropical Falealupo Rainforest Reserve and also experience the natural water slides that are the Papaseea Sliding Rocks.

In Samoa most families pride themselves on preserving local traditions, and to really get a sense of island living, suggest a day trip to Manono Island.

For the more adventurous, clients can choose from a range of activities including the Rainforest Canopy Walk along a hanging bridge on the island of Savaii, the Falease’ela River Walk through Samoa’s natural environment or a scenic inland drive along the Le Mafa Pass on the island of Upolu.
